    So wait, even though the OL was better back then, they're not the reason PR was under the gun more? :confused:

    I agree that LT took the pressure off, but let's face facts: Good OL vs Shite OL makes a difference in QB pressure.

    Also, as I said early in this convo, pressure is one of the main reasons Rivers is crumbling. Simply didn't face this much pressure back then. Put it on the gameplan, the OL, etc, the man is getting more pressure than ever before and he can't handle it.

    See, I told you to replace that LT fathead on the man cave at home with a life size pic of "Yours truly"

    Those are in demand, I hear Obama has me up next Georgie W in the White House.

    That would be Washington by the way ....... NOT Bush. ( although I have nothing against being next to Bush in most instances) ;)

    Rivers used to stand in until the last second and take shots in order to complete a pass....... now, he's prone to scrambling, even when the pressure isn't that great. I'd have to say that he looks a bit gun shy these days, which is odd, since his toughness was never in question before.

    He started looking gun shy early last year when he started getting murdered. It was around that time that he looked injured.
    His first two years he was gun shy as well. Inexperience on one hand, too much experience (with a shite OL and no Super Bowl W) on the other.

    YEP, a measly 8 wins for me also .....

    I've been waiting for the "How about dem COWGAL'S" post by the way ....... Took ya long enough.

    And yep, great win by the Saints, good pick, I nearly went there myself but pussy'd out at the last second....... They are looking pretty darn good again if you ask me.

    Was shocked by the ease at which the Ravens won, also the Viks win was a hue surprise to me also, along with the Titans cleaning the Phins up at home like that....... Again demonstrates how open this season still is....still plenty of PrimmaDonna's masquerading as contenders at this stage.

    And when did Big Ben go out ???....early I'm assuming for the Chiefs to get that close (I have at least 3 of those games on the IQ, now just gotta find the time to watch them)

    Haven't read to much but it sounded like both Vick and Cuntler went down early and also Smith for the Niners........ Not sure if that had a big bearing on the results, but I'd have to think, particularly in the Tex/Bears game it would have, seeing as it was such a low scoring affair.

    Steelers Chiefs not a very good game (quality-wise, BB going down made it exciting though). Think he went out early in 3rd quarter. Not a lot of yards gained in that game.
    Cutler's hit didn't look THAT bad. He played a bit after but then they pulled him and now it's looking like he's going to miss at least another week.

    Unless AJ's Gawnnnnnnn, I see absolutely NO Reason to believe this current FO would ........

    Can anyone else see a reason now anymore than in the past to suggest we would ???

    Can't see AJ going back on Vasquez or Clary at this point, so wouldn't expect any early draft picks on that side.
    I could see him picking a LT early. But he'll choke and pick some guy who'll be injured more often than not.
    Early odds favor Brennan Williams :roflmao:

    SEE, I'm NOT sure why you would think anyone in the current administration would take a different tack than AJ has ????

    Surely if Jimmy Raye is "all that and a bag of Chips" when it comes to evaluating players in the past, he'd have had a fair say in who we have drafted in the last 6 years, wouldn't you think ?

    I would prefer we go the complete sweep, especially as far as the drafting hierarchy goes ........ And that's NOT gonna happen seeing as "Little Johnny" is always gonna have a say in the matter....... That alone leaves me with very little joy to think this team can ever get back to the top again.

    Well ofcourse he is under the gun MORE right now than he was back then, but its not ALL on them is what I'm saying ....... Fillup is playing like a total PrimmaDonna, who couldn't sink a ONE foot putt to save his life presently, I can't for the life of me blame any of his interceptions on the OLine, they were just piss-poor decisions on HIS behalf ....

    I noticed you (or anyone else for that matter) didn't comment on my observation about his Pick 6 last weekend ...... So, was I incorrect about him leaving the pocket for NO REASON or not ?

    No one here has been harsher in their critisism of our Olines performances going back years, than I have, but its time to realize that Fillup is more responsible for his current dilemma than anyone else, plain and simple.

    Anyone need TWO guesses to put a name as to WHO this "Coward" may be ??? :D

    and then just for shites & giggles, because God knows he hasn't been quoted enough since arriving in New York.

    http://aol.sportingnews.com/nfl/sto...y-jets-rex-ryan-twitter?modid=recommended_5_5

    How this guy hasn't been beaten to within an inch of his miserable life by a teamate yet is beyond my comprehension.

    C'mon Tebow, kick his arse and tell the world about it .......................God would be proud of you.

    The Dirty Sanchez must have promised ScareCrow a threesome with his Missus for that lowlife to have said a nice word about him, imagine what he'd say if the guy actually won a game occasionally.

    Disagree. Don't get me wrong, he's obviously ****** in the head. But a good portion of the blame goes to the OL for getting him that way. How would you react with Harris and Clary responsible for your ***? Also Dave's right that Norv's playcalling has not protected Rivers much. Maybe time to run the ball more. **** it if Mathews puts it on the ground, we're losing anyway cause Rivers is tossing it to the other team.

    Hmmmm......... sounds like the classic non-denial denial to me. ;)


    Gorilla Gold, an Idaho-based company, makes the product. It features a wax-based tackifying element designed to improve a player's grip without residue rubbing off onto a ball.

    Patrick Dugan, president of Gorilla Gold, would not say, as other sources have, that Manning has used his towel on the football field at times over his career.

    Some football players are known to have come across the product via other sports, such as golf or tennis.

    “We believe that Peyton Manning has been introduced to the product," Dugan said. "...We know that we have shipped specifically to certain elite quarterbacks in the league. I don't want to name names, but we know that we have, and we know the names are household, and we know they've played in the biggest games that are to be played.”

    Fox said his team doesn't use the towels and that he was unaware they existed until they were brought to his attention during last month's game.

    Asked if Manning said anything to him after the towels got banned, Fox was toweled out.

    "I think we've addressed the towels," Fox said. "I haven't given the towels a second thought. All I know is the league says you can't use them, so we don't."

    Ahhhhhhh Farg it, first time for everything and its a crazy year where you can throw the Formguide out the window.

    Therefore, BIILS for the WIN

    Well seeing as they WERE LEGAL up until about 2 weeks ago, it sounded like EVERY team in the league used them......

    This entire story was the biggest NON-story in the NFL for years, but it sure as hell has been "GOLD" for Gorilla I bet.

    Guys are STILL wearing "sticky-gloves", right ? ...............as I said before, I just don't get it.

    You do realize that Ryan's "hurty" is do to a head-on collision that placed the other player on season ending IR?
